I've seen leftist americans say "voting blue no matter what" is an elitist thing to do and it baffles me how people can fall for this. It isn't. An American republican presidency is always a disastrous influence to global leftist ideals and life conditions.
Historically, american elections influence a whole fucking lot. If you don't vote, there won't be a better candidate, Republicans will just win. If Nazis wanted (and they do) to get into power would they try to bash Trump for not wearing a Nazi uniform or are they desperate to shoot far right any chance imaginable?
Not voting isn't not compromising, it's literally giving up given the current state of things.
If you're in a first world country please don't foster or support those kinds of speeches, elections lost to the right may mean fascism somewhere else.
Doesn't have to be Europe only.
For me it's all of those party + beach destinations like Ibiza, Mallorca, Lloret do Mar, Bali, Thailand, etc. I'm not a partying type of person so those destinations don't appeal to me at all.
I guess Las Vegas counts as one as well, except for the beach part that is, with gambling added to the mix. I'm sure the neons on that street look nice at night but I'm not travelling to another continent to spend time in a giant casino theme park. I've been to Monaco/Montecarlo already, so I don't see the need to go to Las Vegas.
Disneyworld in Florida doesn't interest me at all either. I've already been to Disneyland Paris as a kid. Sure, Disneyland is smaller but I'm not interested in visiting other Disney theme parks as an adult.
What about you?
In the early to mid 2000s I saw the early stages of the rampant anti-science movement we have today emerging from the likes of Alex Jones.
One friend of mine had begun muttering some nonsense about global warming being a hoax and citing studies he took directly off one of Alex Jones' pages so I invited my meteorologist friend to his house for a discussion. During the discussion the meteorologist went through all of the data cited and gave his counterpoints with data. Surprisingly he didn't necessarily dismiss all of the "denial" data but gave his scientific perspective on it. At the end he managed to change the "deniers" perspective and they now not only act consciously in the world but also share the information at their disposal.
Fast forward to 2014 and my son was about to be born amidst all of the anti-vaxx hype. My sister in law was very anti-vaxx and would give my wife and I countless studies to read. I remembering spending many many hours trying to find just one good arti... keep reading on reddit ➡
I remember getting really mad at a couple of ex boyfriends when they suggested we try a facial. It's gonna be messy, it's kinda all for the guy isn't it? And isn't it like porn?? I'm too much of a nice lady for that aren't I?
Well .. fuck .. I guess I was wrong.
Last night, my bf came a few seconds early, and yup .. basically got it all over my face and neck. I knew it was a mistake, so I wasn't mad, but I just thought, okay, let's clean up. Nothing went into my eyes, so that was alright. But then, getting a glance at myself in the mirror, just before cleaning up, seemed to stir up all sorts of interesting feelings in me. I felt marked. I felt like I was owned. It felt raw and passionate, like, damn, he couldn't help himself because of how hot I was, could he? My nudity felt more real, and at that moment, I sorta started to get the appeal of facials. It feels intimate, it feels like I've done my job right, and boy how! I can't promise my boyfriend I'll be open for it always, but heck... keep reading on reddit ➡
The appellate court just set a new standard going against two fit parents. Now in the future, other lawyers and judges will be able to use our case to screw other fit parents by referring to it as case law. If you have children in NYS, BEWARE! If either parent has a mother or father that starts becoming toxic and controlling or are toxic and controlling, DO NOT give them an ounce of access to your children. The small bit we allowed opened the door for MY TOXIC to gain control over our familie's lives for years to come. We can't even move without permission from the court. New York State is by far is the worst state anyone could possibly live in for many reasons.
This is all for now. I have nothing more to say at the moment.
Im so sick of sex appeal in media and life. Everywhere i look, go, and read. Onlyfans to the left, instagram thots on the right. Gym girls and yoga pants everywhere all the time.
What the fuck happened to people and at what point did we all just abandon uniqueness in favor of social cloning and copy/paste social strategies. Sex and sex appeal is cool and sure, it's fun, but like.... Every where? All the time?
There is such a thing as oversaturating a "market" to the point that the value of said product just plummets in to the ground. I've gotten to the point where sex has lost all value completely and now im getting to a point where i try and avoid women because im just so sick of seeing it or hearing about it.
Are people so one dimentional that all we can do is talk about sex and fucking people? It's so bad i cant even avoid it anymore.
I just played through the 5th session of a CoS game and I’m just... I don’t get it. We’ve made it to Vallaki and we dealt with the coffin/bone whatever for the church, but over the past few sessions, I seriously feel like the party has done nothing.
I’ve even played this part before, playing up to around the hag and Ismark, and I’ve simply never felt like I was having much fun. Is this just not my type of module? I’m confused. I know everyone loves Curse of Strahd to death, and I want to as well, but I don’t understand why I’ve been just so consistently indifferent about it. What makes this such a good adventure that I’m missing?
and what was her damn secret?
Growing up in Minnesota, I find it very frustrating how lakes are not allowed to be a part of a National Park, unless it has a Natural wonder in it. I understand there may be hesitation due to the balancing of water only National Parks, but the fact that mountain tiles can be National parks, while lakes cannot be, really bugs me.
Marriage is an agreement between two people. It's great to celebrate that with your family and friends, but why have all those people who aren't involved in the relationship take part in officializing the agreement?
I know it's the Post, but I can't find anyone else that reported it.
As a support main who plays adc secondary it hurts every single time I see this, and I see it 8/10 games, supports hiding so far behind their adc that it effectively turns the lane into a 2v1.
When you are so far behind the adc that your spells can't reach your opponents if they are to engage you are fucking your adc over, you are actively throwing the lane, because if I see that, I know I can just go in at any time, and it's a guaranteed won trade/kill depending on who I'm playing.
This is how I get 99% of my Thresh kills in lane, I just walk up -> E (impossible to walk away from the hook in time, you HAVE to flash) -> hook + ignite -> dead
When all it takes to stop that from happening is the support to not be afk and use their own spells in time, if a Soraka heals during the combo I'm in a bad spot and blew all my spells already, if a Brand just walks up he'll easily land all his spells cause I can't move during that for a good 3 seconds
A lot of games appeal to a pretty basic power fantasy, get strong and overcome every obstacle in your way. That's absolutely fine, I love a lot of games that do this but I also have a lot of love for games that play to different desires that I and many other players have.
It's a bit embarrassing to say, but I often get more wish fulfilment out of Stardew Valley than I do most action games. Running a successful business, being financially secure, owning a house, being an irreplaceable asset to my local community, being in love and starting a family- all of these things hit on something much deeper than the desire to be strong that most games target.
Hitman (2016) is another odd one: it's a game that both allows you to induldge in the wealth an excess of the millionaire lifestyle but also surgically dismantle that world. From Paris fashion shows to lavish Japanese resorts, the game takes you around the globe to the hotspots of the elite. You can't help but soak in and marvel at the gr... keep reading on reddit ➡
